This presentation profiles a project (undertaken in Dr. Deborah Rabina’s Information Services and Resources Spring 2015 course) where students were tasked with creating a LibGuide centered on one of two topics: FDR and the Four Freedoms or, Aging in America. Students were asked to focus on a particular user group in creating an assignment-specific LibGuide that best served the chosen group’s unique information needs (ex., FDR and the Four Freedoms for 8th Grade Students or, Aging in Brooklyn, NY). This presentation also provides an introduction to LibGuides, the limitations involved in their creation, best practices for quality guides, and the importance of the user. We will share our insights about how to use this confining template to create something that delivers content in an appealing and engaging way.
